Cool picture from our upcoming game

Hi,

I wanted to post this picture from our upcoming game. We searched high and low for a suitable picture and couldn't find one, so our artist created this from scratch. Personally I am impressed. what do you think?



Sorry not to give more details about the game, but our CEO (my son) is worried about our game being copied. He and the other developer are both robotics engineers/programmers and they have come up with something that is unique at this point but could be duplicated once it is seen. We will have details as soon as the game is on iTunes which hopefully be in a few weeks. In the meantime, I hope you don't mind my posting the above picture.

:-)

Uhmm quick question,....why are ALL the swords upside down?? Please fix that before release. No offense but it looks ridiculous.



Here is a real Nihonto, being displayed in a way where the cutting edge will not be damaged, ie. facing up.

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

Argh. You are right.

After searching around the internet, I found that the only Japanese sword displayed with the blade down is a "Tachi" sword as discussed here: http://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/pdf/arms.pdf. However our swords are clearly not Tachi swords, which are curved more, so our swords should be facing blade up.

To be fair to our artist, I did see some Samurai swords displayed with the blades down, but that is not the custom.

We are rushing to send our game to Apple this week, so to be honest, I do not think our artist will be able to make the change before the release. He has started another huge project for another group.

However I will work on getting this corrected.

Thank you for taking the time to point this out.
